WHITE WINE SOAVE CLASSICO 'LA ROCCA' PIEROPAN 2020 DESCRIPTION

The Soave Classico La Rocca of Pieropan winery is a simply amazing white wine. Manufactured by one of the most respected winemakers in the name of Soave, this wine has little need to be presented. Pieropan winery has a history that dates back to 1890, is not a new name in Italian oenology, nevertheless has an eye toward the future as demonstrated by the recent changes in the company with the transformation of most of the vineyards in organic farming. The family Pieropan works with focus and dedication, selecting the best grapes, creating wines that stand out for their ability to reflect on tasting the identity of the terroir of origin, which is able to better express their full potential only through the wise man's work. One of the greatest expressions of Garganega is the Soave Classico La Rocca, made from grapes of a particular and exclusive cru, behind the ancient Scaliger castle of Soave. The hill of Monte Rocchetta enjoys a particularly favorable microclimate that allows you to get wine from the rare characteristics, for which every fan of this incredible terroir should have in the cellar some bottles of Pieropan cellar. Soave Classico La Rocca is a white wine elegant and precious, with eloquence, tells a unique complexity. A graceful floral bouquet enriched by sweet fruity nuances, this bright sublime example of Garganega, will not forget to impress you thanks to valuable spicy nuances. In tasting enchants the eye with bright golden glow and the palate with velvety and nobles sensations. From its wrap-around sips it remembers cashmere, while it offers an intense moment of pleasure with a vibrant taste and an interminable final. A great Soave.
